Three Movies in Preproduction Locally

The new Tony Scott flick Unstoppable with Denzel Washington and Chris Pine is in pre-production in Pittsburgh. Sets are being built, trains are being painted. Extra casting has started for the scenes that will be filmed in Ohio; filming will also happen in Weirton.

Edward Zwick's flick Love and Other Drugs with Anne Hathaway, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Judy Greer has had some local casting calls recently. Register with Nancy Mosser Casting if you are interested in being an extra.

Paul Haggis's The Next Three Days with Russell Crowe and Elizabeth Banks will also be shooting in the area this fall. Banks last spent a few months shooting in Pittsburgh two years ago when she made Zack and Miri Make a Porno for Kevin Smith.
